And that it's an item that "promotes or glorifies hatred, violence and racial intolerance,"
It’s a start.
“An interesting point - can it not be said that the Mexican flag represents a “contemporary symbol of divisiveness and racism,”?”
Yup. And the Palestinian flag and the flag of the African Black Congress and that rainbow flag.
Yes, the Rainbow flag is divisive. It needs to be removed from parades and any public venue.
Let’s see how they respond to that.
We would have had amnesty a decade ago if it were not for the Mexican Flag. Pictures of those idiots waving it in protests were what riled the populace and stopped the Bush plan dead in its tracks.
It’s applying the Logic of the left back at them.
Let’s see how they like having the same arguments when talking about of their cherished symbols.
Nice try but not gonna gain any demovotes if that were to happen. “They’d” simply blame it on the republicans. Or call out any conservative as racist. Which I’m still not sure of since that hell hole ended up under Spanish control and I kinda thought Spain was part of europe. It’s all to confusing. When will someones lifestyle get classified as a “race”.
If it’s good for the goose.....
Now, any other apples-and-oranges issues we can address?
Agree with banning the Mexican flag and all things and people Mexican as “the Mexican flag represents a clear and present danger to US sovereignty via the invasion of illegals that it is fomenting”. But the rest of the post is BS and misses the point why the Confederate flag must go to a museum AND the hate, racism, and bigotry associated with it must be addressed. Most Republicans and conservatives are not hateful, racist, bigots, but insisting on and defending the Confederate flag sure blurs that distinction and, unfortunately, gives fodder to the Democratic and media meme to the contrary. And all of these comparative complaints are like our kids asking why they can’t stay up late since the neighbor’s kids are still out playing. Our rules and values are different.
Agreed, those are all Divisive symbols of hate.
The same rules should apply should they not?
I would add to the list the flag of North Vietnam, Visages of Che Guevara, the flag of the Soviet Union ..
The list is long and infamous..
No, it’s illustrating the left’s illogical bent by throwing in back in their faces.
In has nasty, nasty, crazyass GUNS on it.
How about La Raza?
TheWhy do some people get to decide what symbolizes 'hate, racism, and bigotry'? And decide what other may do with their freedom?
ConfederateMexican, Rainbow, Palestinian, etc, flag must go to a museum AND the hate, racism, and bigotry associated with it must be addressed.
This is comparing the controversy of flag to another, how is that ‘apples-and-oranges’?
Don’t stop at flags. Let’s ban Che Guevera T-shirts. Have you read what he said about blacks???
Well, you know the concept of zero tolerance.... it’ll have to go.
